We're back for another edition of the Live Chat you love every Wednesday, your chance to steal some time away from the job and talk about the upcoming college football weekend as well as the most pressing issues going on in the college football world. This week is no different and we've got two extremely different yet equally interesting topics up for grabs in the Live Chat; Two SEC Coaches on the Hot Seat and Pac-10 Division Breakdown.
Kicking it off with the Hot Seat discussion should be fun as two coaches at the opposite end of the wins and loss spectrum this season are both sitting squarely on the flaming chair. Mark Richt, at 1-4 this year, is staring down the barrel of the worst season in Athens in quite some time. Les Miles, after three (UNC, WVU, Tennessee) ridiculous end game scenarios, has once again drawn the fans ire in Red Stick. We'll talk about if their position atop the hot seat is justified and more importantly we'll discuss what they need to do AND what they can do to keep their jobs in SEC country.
Moving on to Pac-10 divisions should get interesting. Brian from BCI and I have had this discussion several times regarding the "balanced division" or "zipper approach" vs the obvious North vs South split. Until someone convinces me why I should like North-South better without using the "it isn't fair that Team X has to play Team Y every year" response I'm going to roll with the zipper format. East-West works great in the SEC but they're geographically split into balanced conferences with Bama, Auburn & LSU and the power three in the West and Florida, Georgia and Tennessee as the power teams in the East*.
*remember folks, we're talking historically strong not just this season.
We'll pick the Slate of Eight + 1 this week and get into the perhaps insanity that is your fearless leader growing so tired of the Les Miles discussion he's riding with the Tigers in Gainesville as a take that to folks. Of course UNC-Clemson will be discussed as will the rest of the big games we hit on this week with Chip Patterson the college football blogger from CBSSports.com.
As always we kick off at 4:30et and that means bring your questions, bring the funny and bring yourself to talk some college football. If you can't make the chat be sure to tweet your question in so we can answer it in the chat for you.
